Therapeutic Counseling and Wellness Services of San Antonio is an out-of-network provider which means that we do not bill insurance companies directly. However, your counseling services may be eligible for reimbursement through your insurance plan’s out-of-network mental health benefits, medical spending, or health care savings accounts.
We choose to work outside of insurance companies for a variety of reasons:
1) We want our clients to be able to determine the length, frequency, and type of therapy they receive. When you use your insurance plan to obtain therapy, the insurance companies can often dictate how long you can be in therapy or even what kind of therapy you can receive.
2) Client privacy and protection. When using insurance to pay for therapy, a mental health diagnosis is required which then goes onto your permanent medical record, possibly creating an impact when applying for life and medical insurance coverage, or possibly limiting future employment opportunities. At Therapeutic Counseling and Wellness Services of San Antonio, we like to empower our clients to choose whether or not they want to have a diagnosis on their medical record. By being out-of-network and private pay, we can allow our clients the highest degree of privacy, flexibility, and control of their medical records allowed by Texas state law.
Because health insurance plans and benefits vary, we recommend you give your health insurance customer service number a call and inquire about your out-of-network mental health benefits to understand what percentage you may be reimbursed if you work with us.
Therapeutic Counseling and Wellness Services of San Antonio will then provide you with a superbill (an itemized medical receipt) at the end of each month which you can submit to your insurance company for out-of-network coverage/reimbursement directly back to you. However, please note that you will be responsible for payment at the time of service. Therapeutic Counseling and Wellness Services of San Antonio accepts cash, credit cards, and debit cards.
